StateCraft Celebrates Sall’s Victory


StateCraft Inc., the elections and governance consulting company under the media group, RED, extended its winning streak into Francophone Africa with the re-election of President Macky Sall of Senegal.

This was contained in a statement by the company’s co-founder, Mr. Adebola Williams, noting that Sall’s victory reaffirmed StateCraft’s leadership in Africa.

The statement said the candidate, who oversaw seven years of rapid economic growth and infrastructural transformation, beat his two main rivals, ex-Prime Minister Idrissa Seck and Ousmane Sonko, to win the keenly contested race.

He won re-election by polling 58 per cent of total votes as announced by the National Vote Counting Commission on Thursday.

The statement said it was an immense privilege “to work with the party coalition, Benno Bokk Yakkar, which has been at the forefront of political reform in Senegal, including other talented teams and individuals all working to tell amazing stories of Sall’s sterling achievements in two years via our campaign, #UnSénégalPourTous.

“As a partner of democracy in Africa, having a front row view of his dedication to excellence and development for all of Senegal leaves us in no doubt that the president-elect is supremely qualified and dedicated to leading the fast-rising West African nation to greatness for the good of all Senegalese.”

With deep expertise in elections, policy, governance, citizen engagement and citizen action, StateCraft Inc. continues to lead the vanguard in politically transforming Africa, one successful campaign at a time.
